It’s been 2 whole months since I posted a chocolate chip cookie recipe! Practically an eternity. I actually made these Brown Butter Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies MONTHS ago and have been tap, tap, tapping my finger in impatience waiting until it would be “appropriate” to post another CCC recipe.
Seriously I have a problem.
Gahhh! Nutty brown butter and smooth cream cheese mixed in a brown sugar cookies base all surrounding semisweet and bittersweet chocolate chips. I can hardly breathe I’m so in love with these cookies! Soft, chewy, flavorful, and oh, so chocolaty!!!
I took a very professional taste-test bite of the dough, and then I Could. Not. Stop. It’s a miracle that any actually made it into the oven!
I think these brown butter beauties would make my girl, Kayle, the Brown Butter Baking Champion herself, proud. In fact, I think that she and y’all should drop whatever it is that you are doing and run to the kitchen, get that butter in a saucepan, and make these cookies!
It may come as a shock to you, but I actually created this recipe on the treadmill. #foodbloggerirony
I do most of my creative thinking on the treadmill. Running allows my mind to wander and daydream in a way that I don’t allow it to in everyday life. Working out is my time. It is my reset button. It’s not optional.
Neither is making these cookies. Bake cookies, take one bite, sigh in happiness.
I’ve already expressed my new found love of cream cheese chocolate chip cookies but the brown butter makes these magical. I have been dying to share them with you!!!
Why are you still reading? You should be baking!!
But before you do, don’t forget to sign up for the giveaway to win a KitchenAid stand mixer! It ends tomorrow!
